The Chance To Become World Beaters
Champions League Draw
qualifying rounds for some teams, the UEFA Champions League draw was made in Zurich today and it will be the last Champions League as we know it, with four English sides in the draw. This will all be change next season with Belgium, Ukraine and Turkey to get four
representatives next season. So who made this season's Champions League that would be deemed a surprise?
Danish sides have made the group stages. FC Kobenhavn are the usual side that make it year in, year out but FC Nordsjealland have also made it after defeating Lyon and A.C Milan to make the group stages.
Bulgarian side Ludogarets will also be in the Champions League for the first time in there history after knocking out BATE, Molde and Partizan to grab there place and they will not be in it to just make up the numbers with players like David Silva, Mats Hummels, Gael Clichy and Sergio Aguero they will be a force to be recogned with.
It was a interesting group draw with group B going to be the most boring group of the tournament but PSV did manage to pick up a few good players in Romelu Lukaku but it is Group's D, E and F that are the most interesting.
Group D could be Anderlecht's group with three sides who have had everything took away from them in Real Madrid, Zenit and Leverkusen. Legia should also get through with a group of Bayern, CSKA Moscow and Man City. these two groups should be wide open for the last qualification spot though.
Ludogarets, the early favourites to win the Champions League will have to get past Arsenal, Dortmund and OM if they are to live up to the expectations. Celtic and Basel are expected to top Group C in a group with Porto and Paris Saint-Germain and FC Copenhaven and Galataseray should win Group A easily too.
In the last two groups FK Austria Wien should top there group with Barcelona, Juventus and Ajax in and the toughest group is Group H with FC Norsjaelland, Olympiakos and Shakhtar in, Benfica are the unlucky side to be drawn against them three sides.
Ludogarets - 3/1f
Aderlecht - 5/1
Shakhtar - 5/1
Basel - 7/1
Celtic - 9/1
Legia - 10/1
